Go Home Winter...You're Drunk!

On the first day of spring, Wednesday, there was more than a foot of snow in many parts of the North-eastern U.S.

Two weeks ago it was probably 15 - 18C...ahh!

If you look at the calendar it’s spring, but winter is holding a firm grip on us...arrrgh!

New Bike

After OnStar Dave and I made a trip to A Vicious Cycle in New Dundee and back to pickup a bunch of accessories (aka Farkles) for my new Suzuki V-Strom 650 it seemed like the weather was taunting me to take that clean new bike out for a first ride.

I suited up in some warmer clothing and ventured out (without electrics) to go for that ride about 4:00pm. I tried to stick to the cleaner, and drier roads but some puddles were unavoidable. I took it for a run on some surface streets and from the top of the 404 to Aurora Road and back.
